BY foxsports • June 13, 2012

Nicklas Bendtner could face UEFA action for ambush marketing after he scored his second goal in Denmark's 3-2 loss against Portugal.

Bendtner's celebration Wednesday including lifting his shirt and dropping his shorts slightly to reveal a gambling firm's name on his underpants.

Minutes later, the bookmaker sent a Twitter message with a photograph claiming that Bendtner was wearing his lucky underwear.

UEFA regulations for Euro 2012 require that ''all kit items worn during the final tournament must be free of any sponsor advertising.''

UEFA has sent a member of its marketing department to monitor each match for attempts to circumvent strict rules to protect official sponsors.
